I hope you arrived in 2011 in a fantastic way. Every year is exiting cause we do not know what lies ahead. I hope to get more things done than last year. I´m tired of working, getting home and than doing nothing. I wanna do more crafty stuff for my shootings. And I just started with it. With a new material to match!
Latex is a material mostly associated with dominas, women in gasmasks and a kinky lifestyle by the mainstream. However what is not taken into consideration: It is a damn good looking material, relatively easy to use and you can do cute things with it!
I bought this Latex Mini Skirt on ebay for a few bucks with the idea of making a cute and quirky girdle out of it! You can really make a bargain with those. In fact I bought a second one for 11 € including shipping to make one more!
Everything looks cuter with ruffles and hearts. I know the glue is supposed to be transparent before you stick the pieces together, but I was impatient!!!! Next time I will be a good girl cause the liquid glue can make ugly marks on the shiny material. I learned it the hard way! Note how I found an additional use for the hairclips with that I usually pin curl my hair!
I carefully marked the hem with a gel pen to glue my dried ruffles there in the most possible even way...
Tada!!! Now I will just need to make a top to go with it and add the suspenders! Ignore the glue marks on the finished result. If anyone knows a good way to get rid of the marks let me know! I already tried alcohole and water. This is the second latex piece I ever made and I will be doing a shooting with it hopefully soon!!!
